Using SynchroNEES to Download and Upload Files
The SnychroNEES tool allows you to move files between your local computer and your NEEShub home directory, the scratch directory (used when running simulations on the NEEShub), the group dropboxes, and your projects.
SynchroNEES is not a tool that you can run in the NEEShub. It is distributed as a downloadable file that you install on your local computer. The “Download” button on the SnychroNEES tool page will download the Windows installation (.msi) file. If you have a different operating system, you can download the appropriate installation file from the docs and attachments tab on the tool page.
When you launch SynchroNEES, you will be asked to log in with your NEEShub login and password. Upon successful log in, SynchroNEES will display an “Overview” tab containing links to your home directory, the scratch space, your group spaces, and your projects.
You can move files as follows:
|local computer||home directory|
|local computer||group dropbox|
|home directory||local computer|
|scratch space||local computer|
|group dropbox||local computer|
|project directory||local computer|
You cannot move files into the project directory using SynchroNEES, and you should not move files into the scratch space using SynchroNEES.
In the “Overview” tab click on the NEEShub location to/from which you want to move files. A new tab will be created that shows the directory structure for that location. In the upper right corner of this tab will be a smaller tab labeled “My Files”. Click on this smaller tab to display the contents of your local computer.
You can now move files by dragging them to/from locations in the upper pane from/to locations in the bottom pane.
